Victorian design by Dan Diehl
This homeowner was kind enough to give information not only of why they enjoy living on the SS but also about the designer of this study:
“The South Side is home to many characters and creative types. When it came time to renovate and restore our 1887 Italianate Style home on 17th Street, I had the good fortune to meet Dan Diehl, an expert in Victorian Design and a resident of Sydney Street.
Dan’s work brings us joy and satisfaction every day.
Diehl moved on to England where he published books on how to build Medieval and Renaissance furniture, met Royalty, and continued his creative life in the arts and through historical documentaries.”
This room is almost like a glorious Victorian time capsule! Everything is perfectly placed and well thought out. The mixed patterns on the walls go flawlessly with the wicker furniture and wood bookcase.
